Leviathan is looking good even if it is the early stages of its construction.

And YAY! Dinos for everyone! :lol:

The dampers were installed just after Labour Day however they weren't able to do full testing until the last week of September as this is when the winds finally picked up enough for them to test them properly. There's still some adjustments that need to be made but they've apparently made quite a difference.

Looks like it's the same as KI, which as long as it's included in the $5 and not an extra $2 on top of that, it's not bad.

I thought it would be interesting to point out a change at the bottom of the lift hill for Leviathan... The chain actually begins earlier at the drive tires as opposed to starting right at the incline. I think that this is a modification because of the incident a few years back at Behemoth where the lift hill motor broke. Having the chain starting horizontally would remove the initial shock/tug the chain gets.

PS. Wonderland probably found out about the Dino leak because someone just had to post it on Facebook.
